Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.
In 2020, many of us experienced a Christmas when so many of the ways we traditionally mark the season were suddenly denied to us.
This year we hope and pray that many of the familiar experiences that help Christmas come alive return to our homes, our churches and communities. But whatever else December brings, it will offer us an opportunity to enter more deeply into the joyful mystery that lies at its heart: God becoming human in the birth of Jesus Christ.
At the heart of Christmas is an invitation to discover – or rediscover – the good news of God’s saving love as revealed in the birth of Jesus. It is also a challenge to each of us to ponder in our hearts – as Mary did – what the extraordinary events of the first Christmas might mean for us now and in the years ahead.
